Magic Carpet’s shows are extremely adaptable
with versions suitable for presentation to audiences in school
and community venues, arts centres, theatres and at outdoor events


Wizard of Castle Magic – Things will never be the same again when the Wizard's nephew, Mickey, and an invisible cat called Catastrophe, arrive at Castle Magic. Will the Wizard teach Mickey any spells? Will Mickey discover the secret in the Spell Chest? These mysteries and more will all be revealed in this very spooky but funny play for 5 - 11 year olds.

It’s based on the traditional Sorcerer’s Apprentice tale and is guaranteed to enchant audiences of 3 – 11 year olds and their families. The production is set in the Wizard’s castle and the scenery is colourful and interactive with mysterious, moving portraits, sliding panels and trapdoors.

This is Magic Carpet’s brand new version of their, very popular, company devised production which originally played in schools, arts venues and at Edinburgh Festival. The script is packed full of special theatrical effects, illusion and loads of audience participation. Mickey, the bungling apprentice, accidently turns one of the audience into a frog!

“Dear Mickey, I loved it when you said the one on the top tastes like pop. And the wizard said No No No it has to be a word ending in green and you said it tastes like icecream and you drank the potion. Please will you come again next year. Love from Molly”
